    Default Social signals - are they working for you?

    Hey guys,

    I'm wondering how many of you out there are finding that social signals are helping your SERPs? And if they are, by how much and have you done any specific experimenting of what results they achieved for you?


    I've run a campaign for one of my sites and it seems that some of my primary keywords have dropped off the map completely, which I wasn't expecting at all. And no, there's been no other link building done to the website in quite some time.

    Ive been seeing great results with social signals (Twitter, Facebook, Google+) on youtube videos. Its been ranking on YT a whole lot quicker.

    But like everything with SEO, 1 tactic simply isn't enough to sustain high rankings.

    Social signals for brands seem to work really well, but it really is a combination of many different forms of links that makes it more likely that your site will rank well in the SERPs.

    Depends, when my shares/links/other signals have been natural I've seen an increase in rankings/traffic. But that's probably because that content is more likely to be shared (and thus linked to) more naturally anyway.

    They work, but ONLY IF YOU have ACTIVE and REAL social accounts connected to the website.

    That's all I use now is social media signals. Why not have people share your site for you? Nobody shares crap xrumer dropped backlinks

    I use synnd for all my social signaling. After every guest post i send tweets, likes, bookmarks etc. to them. I feel as though it gives my link more weight, seems to do the trick.

    Is another tool in the arsenal, would drop the others and focus soley on this though. Then again my accounts are fair from real, engaging and quality orientated.

    I just have some bots scrape recent related social stories / news items / trends etc and post to the accounts with a little "LOL" or "OMG" added for no other reason than it makes me chuckle

    Funnily enough after I launched the social media campaign; my SERPs dropped off the radar and I thought "shit, here we go...". But 2 months later, and I've just recovered stronger than ever with some minor link building done by a high PR link network... so I wonder if it was the social metrics that knocked me out and/or whether they have helped recover after doing some minor link building?

    I might have to create a separate websites on an old domain and see what sort of results I achieve just by content + social metrics.
